The Campus Governing Council
Finance Committee Monday delayed ac
tion on the Student Television budget un
til Wednesday night because of questions
about the categories some STV funding
should be listed under.
Meanwhile, Sunday night, the Student
Consumer Action Union received only
about 60 percent of the amount it re
quested. Questions surrounding STV's budget
concerned the fund-raising amount listed
in the proposed budget. STV officers are
hopeful about the prospects of receiving
two grants. If both grants come through,
they would give the organization $50,000
to purchase video equipment. STV
Development Director Tim Sullivan said
STV had received "very positive verbal
feedback" from -the two foundations,
which officers of STV preferred not to
Sullivan said the understanding be
tween STV and the foundations was that
the grants, if awarded, would be for
equipment necessary for STV, such as
cameras or other video equipment.
"We made a request for an amount,"
Sullivan said. "They asked us what will
be the tangible results."
"No foundation will give us any
money for erasers and pencils," said Pro
gramming Director John Wilson.
The grants were listed under projected
income. The Finance Committee,
however, saw the raw figure of $50,000,
and in a called closed session reasoned
that the $50,000 would more than cover
operational expenses, which they
budgeted at $5,985.

In response to requests for im

Department of Public Instruction is con

school teachers more money for more
responsibility and work.
The statewide plan will be presented to
the State Board of Education in May,
said Tom Davis, spokesman for the
Department of Public Instruction. If ap

Assembly will consider funding the plan,
which could go into effect as early as fall
"In most large high schools, there may
be 15 English teachers, and one teacher is

Students start search
for summer job housing
By BETH OWNLEY
For those students who found a summer
job or internship in another city or state,
finding a place to live may be difficult,
according to Robin Joseph, experiental
learning coordinator for the UNC Career
Planning and Placement Services.
Joseph said that most students are on
their own when it comes to finding hous
ing. Students who arrange internships
through the Branch Banking and Trust
bank are given a housing allowance to
pay for their summer housing. Joseph
also said that many students who have in
ternships in Washington, D.C. find hous
ing through the Washington Center.

dent interns names of the alumni in the ci
ty of his internship preferably those
close to the student's age.

The bill passed by the committee Mon
day is an amendment to a bill proposed
by Student Body President Paul Parker
which would allow student activities fees
to be raised with the approval of a simple
majority of students voting without the
20 percent requirement.
Approval of an increase in the student
activities fees currently requires a two-
Initially, the plan would cost $50
million and would pay extra money to
about 15 percent of the state's teachers.
Currently in North Carolina, teachers
and administrators are paid according to
the type of college degree they hold and
the number of years they have taught.
Davis said most teachers in the state
hold a bachelor's degree. Teachers with
this degree who have taught for five years
earn $17,700 each year. N.C. educators
or administrators who hold higher'
degrees and who have worked for five
years earn $19,300.
Such increases in teacher pay generally '
are supported by the state's citizens, ac
cording to a recent Carolina Poll taken by
the UNC School of Journalism.

Petition for hiking
fees called illegal
Former CGC Speaker Exum against;
Parker wouldn't 'stifle 6,000 voices'
By STEVE FERGUSON
Assistant University Editor
A petition to get 6,000 student signa
tures to present to the UNC Board of
Trustees in support of a $1.50 fee increase
goes against the Student Code and is not
democratic, said James Exum, former
Campus Governing Council speaker.
"I don't agree with what the petition is
seeking to do," Exum said. "It says very
clearly in the Student Code that 20 per
cent of the students must vote before a
fee increase is incurred. Removing the 20
percent is undemocratic."
Exum said a more appropriate method
of introducing the fee increase would be
to place a referendum before the students
and allow them to decide.
A fee increase is necessary, Exum said.
"I most certainly do want to see a fee in
crease. I've supported one for three
years, but when it does occur, I want to
see it done in the most fair and demo
cratic way possible, but right now that's
just not being done."
: Exum said it would be inappropriate
for the CGC to ask the Board of Trustees -to
overturn a decision the students had
already made, referring to recent campus
elections when a fee increase was re
jected. The increase was supported by
66.3 percent of the voters in the last elec
tion. The percentage missed the two
thirds approval necessary for passage by

"The reality of it is very few people

It would be easier for Student Govern
ment to hold a fee referendum but you'd
have less people involved."
While the petition, if completed, will
contain signatures of 6,000 students,
fewer would turn out for a referendum
vote, he said. In this way, the petition will
involve more students, Berger said.
Student Body President Paul Parker
said he would present the petition before
the BOT because it was his duty as a stu
dent representative on the board.
"If 6,000 people bring a petition to me,
I'd express concern to the Board of
Trustees," Parker said. "I am a mediator
and I am a representative. My job is to
represent the students."
Parker added that the petition alone
could not decide anything, it only
represented student concern.
"There's no way I'm going to stifle
6,000 people's voice," Parker said.
"That would be undemocratic."

bors to challenge the court's jurisdic
tion in Central America.
Even before the Nicaraguans filed their
complaint at the International Court of
Justice in The Hague, the United States
told the international body it will not
recognize the court's right to rule in any
cases involving Central America-for the
next two years.
State Department spokesman John
Hughes indicated that the administration
did not want to have to answer questions
from the court about alleged U.S. in
telligence activities in Nicaragua. He said
Washington also did not want the court
to be turned into a "propaganda forum"
by the Nicaraguans.
Nicaraguan Foreign Minister Miguel
d'Escoto told reporters at his country's
embassy here that the contras, or anti
government guerrillas, had killed 1,300
Nicaraguans since the CIA-organized in
surgency began in late 1981.
In addition, he said, many more people
have been injured, with "hundreds of
millions of dollars in damage and destruc
tion." D'Escoto said Nicaragua had brought
its complaint before the World Court
because it "seeks a complete and open ex
amination of the facts" and the chance to
demonstrate that U.S. support for the in
surgency is "an issue of force in clear
violation of international law."
The United States has taken cases to
the World Court in the past. The most
notable case in recent years was a com
plaint against Iran for seizing American
hostages in 1979. The court rules that
Iran had violated international law, but
the hostages were not released until
The administration's latest move was
interpreted by critics as an admission that
its case for supporting that guerrillas
fighting Nicaragua's leftist Sandinista
government was weak and that it feared
an adverse World Court ruling.
